Do You Want To Build A Snowman

Let me preface this blog post by saying that I have always loved Disney. I’ve never been to Disney World, but I’ve watched their Christmas Parade for as long as I can remember. I used to collect their movie soundtracks, and only stopped when you could start purchasing single tracks off of iTunes. I loved Disney so much, that I even sent them a blind audition tape, hoping that, just maybe, I could be a voice in one of their…

Baby Led Weaning – Watermelon Honeydew Cantaloupe – 8 month old {video}

Our Baby Led Weaning adventures continue! Itty Bitty’s pincer grasp continues to get better and better, so I’ve begun giving him smaller pieces of food – this time watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe. He often will just grab a massive handful and shove several pieces in his mouth at once…but who could blame him. He’s a little boy who’s hungry. Isn’t that what they do? You can watch the video below to see him chow down! Interested in more Baby Led…

Baby Essentials: Baby Carriers

I absolutely love wearing my baby – even still at 10 months and close to 26 pounds – I chose to wear him 90% of the time when we are out and about. I just find it so much easier than dealing with strollers or carriages, and he seems to enjoy it so much more being close to Mom!I’ve tried out a ton of different baby carriers, so I thought I’d share with you my top picks: 1. Nuroo Pocket…

Huge Announcement

Tall Dad and I have a huge announcement to make! We are so stinkin’ excited…. To formally introduce you to… PARENTCAST ParentCast is an audio (and sometimes video) podcast created by Tall Dad (Blake) and myself.  I’ve realized that I love blogging, but that there are some topics that would be better shared or discussed in an audio conversation.  Maybe to capture the true character of the people, the passion behind a discussion, or just a long ,yet informative, interview.…

I Can’t Put My Arms Down

It’s been quite a snowy week here in Rhode Island – and this winter loving Tall Mom couldn’t wait to bundle up Itty Bitty in his snowsuit and take him for a ride in his baby sled.  After I got him dressed and ready to go, I took a brief look at him and had to laugh.  He looked to tiny in this snowsuit! Granted I picked it up at a yard sale, and judged the size by eye, but…

Teething Baby Eats His Crib

So this just happened… After a straight week of being sick, having little to no energy, my lovely baby is finally on the mend! He ate a whole container of yogurt, some fruits, and a serving of oatmeal this morning! I couldn’t be happier. I was beaming, cleaning the house, playing peekaboo, reading books…that is until I walked into his bedroom. Then I took a look at his crib. His very expensive crib. I’m pretty sure his crib cost more than…

Long Night With a Sick Baby and Mickey Mouse

Shame on me. Seriously. Slap my wrists and revoke my mom card, because I did something I swore I wouldn’t do. I even secretly scoffed when I heard other moms talk about it. I pacified my baby with the television.  This poor little guy was sick as a dog for the past three weeks (which is why I haven’t been on the blog as much as I would have liked.) First, it was teething. Teething, I can handle. Then it…

Baby Led Weaning – Scrambled Eggs – 8 month old {video}

Baby Led Weaning has been a blast so far for our family!  Itty Bitty is really starting to understand how to put the food in his mouth, and work with different textures and tastes.  One of the newest foods we have tried out has been eggs.  At first I hard boiled an egg and tried to give him the yolk, but it just became a crumbly mess. Next I made scrambled egg yolks, which he really seemed to love.  I…

New Parents Guide: A Valentine’s Day Date Night In #ad

Being a new parent has shown me that I can love more than I ever imagined. It’s been a revelatory experience. The best part though – not only has my heart grown larger for my tiny baby, but I have also fallen even deeper in love with Tall Dad. Just when I thought he couldn’t be more handsome, funny, or sweet, I see how gentle and loving he is with our Itty Bitty, and my heart melts even more. One of…
